Persistent fetal circulation

Persistent fetal circulation is a condition caused by a failure in the systemic circulation and pulmonary circulation to convert from the antenatal circulation pattern to the "normal" pattern.

It can be associated with pulmonary hypertension. Because of this, the condition is also known as "Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn".
